Remembering Oscar de la Renta

Sadly, the fashion world lost an iconic designer last night. Oscar de la Renta dressed women from Jacqueline Kennedy, to Audrey Hepburn, to Sarah Jessica Parker making them some of the most beautifully dressed women in the world. Most recently, Amal Alamuddin had the honor of wearing one of his designs as she wed her husband, George Clooney. His clothing was timeless, beautiful, and always stood out as a work of art.

Peter Pilotto

I normally don’t write a blog twice in one week, but I was so excited about Peter Pilotto’s line at Target I just had to share my findings!
First off, I find it amazing that there is a store where women can purchase nice, name brand clothing at an affordable price. Target has done an amazing job when it comes to having various articles of clothing and accessories by different designers. In the past year, I have aquired a scarf by Marc Jacobs, purses by Oscar de la Renta and Phillip Lim, and now a skirt and top by Peter Pilotto. For someone on a teacher’s salary, this is a dream come true! When I do invest in designer pieces, and I am talking about walking into the designer stores themselves- never knock offs, I usually purchase purses. My favorites are Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and the occasional Coach. To me, purchasing these items are an investment, not that clothes aren’t. But I need something with staying power for my day to day job. And being in front of the board with markers and designer clothes makes me nervous! So when Target started promoting all of these wonderful designers, and the above mentioned are just a few, I was overcome with pure joy!
The skirt below is my absolute favorite piece from the collection. I can dress it up with a black blouse and blazer during the last few months of our winter, or I can pair it with a white blouse, cobalt blue jacket (for contrast) and a necklace within the same color family to pull it all together. Affordable prices and designer pieces makes me one happy girl!
